The Begining of the End
"President Bush said Friday that the bill "will help our intelligence professionals learn our enemies' plans for new attacks."" - From CNN 6-20-08
"Wherever he may be, asleep or awake, working or resting, in his bath or in his bed, he can be inspected without warning and without knowing that he is being inspected." - Orwell "1984"
Here's my advice to you faithful reader, cash in all of your chips. Sell your house and car, family pets, bongs and toilet seat collection. Take everything you can carry and GET OUT OF THE COUNTRY NOW!!! Either that or run out and buy yourself an AK-47 or Benelli 12 gauge pump. The house has just approved and the senate will shortly approve a bill that the grandson of a Nazi sympathizer desperately wants to sign in to law. This law will forever change the way we Americans communicate. You were not paying attention this week and they slipped this one right past you. This FISA update bill opens the door to all kinds of new legislation concerning our rights to privacy. Secret courts will determine your freedom from government snooping. The good news is that if enough people wake up to how shitty all of this is, we can reverse it in 2012 (fat chance). Until then, watch what you say on the phone when making domestic calls and you know that bomb throwing cousin of yours in Iran? Tell him to start sending you smoke signals because your rights to privacy are now worse than his.
